WordPress, We Are Looking at You

WordPress is great but we think we have a solution that makes more sense minus the magic plugins.

WordPress to Webflow is like comparing Android to an iPhone

Only Apple makes iPhones, so it has extremely tight control over how the software and hardware work together. On the other hand, Google offers the Android software to many phone makers, including Samsung, HTC, LG, and Motorola. ... Of course iPhones can have hardware issues, too, but they're generally higher quality. We think this is the same scenario to comparing WordPress to Webflow. This means a significant time and cost savings to designers, developers, and website owners not to mention a more beautiful, elegant user experience.

Webflow brings creative freedom to web design like no other platform, with 100% visual design tools, a fully customizable CMS built for structured content, and intuitive ecommerce functionality — without all the headaches of WordPress.

Write and edit — right on your site

With the Webflow Editor, you can create and edit content right on your page, so there’s no need to navigate a messy WordPress backend content management system. Once you’re happy with the changes, you can publish them to the site with the click of a button.

Straightforward SEO controls

With the Webflow Editor, there’s no need for a plugin to manage and update your site’s SEO settings. From page titles to meta descriptions, URLs to Open Graph settings — it’s easy to optimize every page of your site for search.

The designers' alternative to WordPress

Webflow combines a fully customizable CMS with powerful visual website design tools, so you can build a custom database for every site, and design around real content saving time and developer costs. And with nothing to install, automatic updates, and no PHP, it's easier to use and more secure than WordPress.

User-friendliness of CMS


Simple on-page editing, minimal dashboard UI.

The WordPress dashboard provides lots of options that are irrelevant to most clients, and lacks on-page editing.
